Did you miss me?

Apologies for one more non-stationery recap, but hopefully I’ll make up for it with gorgeous pictures. I got back about 1am last night (this morning?) from a 12-day trip to Norway. It was in a single word: amazing.

I don’t think I’ve ever been to a more beautiful country. Every day we were surrounded by forests, waterfalls, fjords, lakes, sheep and too many beautiful sights to document. There was a lot of running and walking, enjoying being outdoors, sampling new cuisine (surprise: not as much fish as I thought there would be), and meeting new people. There was also a little drinking, some journaling, and lots of making memories that will last a lifetime. You can find my full Flickr album here, but I’ve added a few of the highlights below:
